An absorbing account of Ion Idriess's adventures in the Jungles of North Queensland during the early part of this century, illustrated with numerous notes on the unique wildlife and characters of the region.
“Mr Idriess’s vivid pages recall busy days when Cooktown was lively with prospectors from northern Peninsula goldfields; when men from the south-western tin-fields, from the beautiful Bloomfield and those wild outposts, the Scrub Camp and China Camp, made the old town merry..” quoted from the Foreword by Charles Patching.
